About TopHN

TopHN is a website that aims to recommend exactly one story from Hacker News to you.

Say you have got only enough time in a day to read just one story from Hacker News. What is that story going to be? This website tries to answer that question for you.

The top story on Hacker News is sampled every minute. The story that occurred most frequently in these samples in the last 24 hours is recommended to you.

What if you missed the top story yesterday, or the day before yesterday, or the one last weekend? We have got that covered on the archive page.

This is a free and open source website. The source code of this website is available on GitHub under the terms of the MIT License.

Hope you like this website and visit it on your busy days.
